The aim of this project is to explore the ability, willingness and limits of this willingness, to care, among nurses within intensive care during a pandemic. The project consists from five studies with qualitative design or concept analysis, where nurses moral approach towards to care in a situation with a potential risk for ones own wellbeing is conducted. The project will generate knowledge to understand nurse's motivation to care, that will add value for future contingency planning within the health care services. The project is a collaboration between Karolinska Institute (KI) and Örebro University.
